    Whaaaat? How could the other reviewer say they have one of the best GF menus?!? They have one horrible, crunchy, nasty GF pasta and one or two sauces. Probably less than 5 highly modified options. One of the worst GF dining experiences I've ever had. This company does not care about serving the GF community, that's for sure.

    TJ's is the best! Stuff you just cant find at other markets. Ask at the manager booth and they will give you a huge list of everything in the store that is GF!

    One word for the food here: superb! They call it "rustic Italian," and they have a great variety of dishes from pastas to pork, chicken and salmon. Everything looked great so it was hard to decide what to order. I had the pork medallions Marsala and my husband had the salmon piccata--both cooked perfectly and delicious. Be aware that although they have a GF menu here, that does not include any pasta dishes. They don't serve a GF pasta. For those who can eat it though, the gnocchi and the clam linguine looked good (sniffle). Highly recommend, GF or not. A little expensive but worth it.

    I've been happily dining here for many years before needing to eat GF. Though I now cannot have many of their delicious items I used to enjoy, there is still some deliciousness to be had here! They don't have a specific GF menu, but are very accommodating about tweaking several dishes to be GF. Their Parmesan risotto has always been a favorite for me, and they make that up GF upon request--I think I may like it better than the regular version! They also offer a GF pasta that is very soft, not hard and crunchy. I also enjoy the calamari dish done GF---they grill the calamari steak and make the lemony sauce GF to order--yum. They always go out of their way to accommodate here, and though they can't guarantee a completely GF kitchen for the very sensitive, they cook everything separately to try to avoid contamination. I still love this place, even now that I need to eat GF.

    Had our first GF pizza here last night, and I really liked the crust. The entire pizza itself was okay, though the pepperoni was very strange and not too good. As for the GF crust, that was the best part of the pizza! It had a dense texture, chewy and also crunchy at the same time, with a taste a little bit like a dense cornbread---but in a good way! HOWEVER, I think the price for GF pizza is outrageous! It was over $20 for the one size offered, a smallish "large," and that was WITH a $5 coupon! We would be more likely to return more often if the price were just a teensy bit more reasonable...

    This RR is the worst! So much so, we finally gave up and won't return. We've sent back more burgers done wrong than we're made right! Always over cooked and rubbery, and service is bad to inconsistent at best. Plenty of other better burger choices in the area without paying for bad food and service!

    Update: In response to the review that says the GF bun fell apart---I have had the buns here several times now and they have lasted to the last bite EVERY time! In fact, the GF bun held up better than the regular and WW I've had there pre-GF DAYS! ::shrug:: I had an absolutely delicious burger here! The GF bun was from Jensen's Bakery (Better Buns), and if you haven't had one, it has great texture and doesn't crumble through the last bite of your burger. The burger was cooked exactly how I requested and everything we both ordered was tasty and served hot. Couldn't ask for more. Lots of variety for those not into a beef burger---they also burgers made of buffalo, wild boar (yes, really!), vegetarian, black bean, chicken and salmon. If you can have them, the onion rings are awesome.

    Very accommodating to GF diners. In fact,most of the menu choices are GF so it's easy! Never thought that a chain steakhouse would have so many good GF choices. The steak was tender and juicy, salad was fresh with lots of good veggies added in, and side of grilled veggies and mushrooms was delicious. Their seasonings are all safe, and even the Bernaise sauce is GF, so I loved having that on the side with my steak--yummy. :p Our server was awesome and very knowledgable about all the details of the menu items, preparations, good choices, etc. A great experience and meal overall, and will definitely return!

    GF pasta here was pretty awful--strange texture and broke into bits. Felt like a heavy gut bomb in my stomach. I've always enjoyed going to Olive Garden occasionally, but it now looks like sadly, I won't be able to eat here any more. The menu choices for GF are very limited, and let's face it, if you can't have pasta here, why go? Also want to mention, GF pasta costs extra and is never included in the "never-ending pasta bowl" promotions they run. Overall, extremely disappointing and I left hungry. Skip it if need GF and go to Old Spaghetti Factory a couple blocks away--they put this place to shame and are less expensive to boot!

    Many GF options, printed right on regular menu. Server was very aware and attentive to GF needs, which is refreshing. Had lunch of GF pasta with marinara and a sausage,which was very good. They use Heartland pasta, first time I've tried it and I thought it had good texture and was quite tasty. My GF meal came out with a little GF flag on it, which I thought was very funny, but it is effective since the GF pasta looks very similar to regular. The prices are very inexpensive and even include coffee or tea, and spumoni ice cream which is GF also--yum! I will definitely return. A hassle-free, nice GF lunch.

    What's not to love here?! Totally worry-free GF eating because almost everything offered is GF! Been a long-time fan even before needing to find GF. Food is always hot, fresh, healthy and delicious. If you've passed by this place thinking its just another Mexican fast-food joint, do yourself a favor and give it a try. I've never had a bad meal here, and that's really saying something about a fast-food-type restaurant!

    We have been eating here for a long time, so now that I need to eat GF, it was nice to find out there are so many menu choices here that I can still enjoy. The meals are a bit pricey, but mostly of good quality and tasty. They can be a little hit and miss once in a while with preparation of this or that item, but will always happily correct with no hassles or argument. Overall, a good place to have a non-junk-food dinner, with lots of GF choices.

    The GF pizza crust isn't bad. Not great, but not bad either. Thin and crispy style. However, it costs almost as much as a large pizza to get a small individual GF pizza for one person. The pizza overall is not that great, but it would probably do if everyone wants to have pizza and the person who needs GF doesn't want to be left out. We had a great server when we were there who really went out of his way to give us great service and info, so that increased their appeal for me.

    Fabulous dinner--everything fresh and hot, very tasty. The waitperson was great about all GF requests, didn't miss a thing. The GF menu here is quite large, so it felt good to have so many choices! They even have a GF dessert that was delicious. Will definitely return!

    Very GF friendly! The best GF bun for my hamburger that I've had---it held up without crumbling all the way to the last bite of my burger and tasted good. Lots of choices and build your own burger, sweet potato fries, garlic Parmesan fries, salad, many choices besides beef. Loved it! Will definitely return.

    There's no gluten-free bread/buns available at the Red Robin restaurants in my area. The GF menu indicates the only way to make items GF is to order them without a bun, or with a lettuce wrap. Sigh. I was so hopeful that I could have an entire burger out for a change....
